Description Chris McMahon 2012-11-28 19:20:30 UTC
seen in all versions of IE, particularly IE8 and IE9, discovered via an automated browser test: 

On a page in beta labs for example

Click Yes or No

Enter feedback and post it. After posting page shows "Your post can be viewed on this feedback page." where 'feedback page' is a link.  

In IE, click the 'feedback page' one time.  Nothing happens.  Click 'feedback page' a second time and IE navigates to the feedback page.  

Firefox and Chrome navigate to the feedback page with just one click of 'feedback page'

Note:  fixing this would not only make the automated tests happy, but would be a subtle improvement in UX also.
Comment 1 Matthias Mullie 2012-11-29 16:41:57 UTC should fix this
Comment 2 Chris McMahon 2012-12-04 21:04:44 UTC
on beta as of just now the 'feedback page' link does not function for any browser.

to demonstrate, leave feedback on any page, e.g. and after posting feedback, attempt to use the 'feedback page' link
